SquareEnix and Disney have released today, at during this year’s Tokyo Game Show, an all-new trailer for upcoming game Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue.

The newly-released trailer features snippets from all three titles within 2.8, but focuses primarily on Aqua’s all-new playable chapter, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep – A fragmentary passage –, and is set to a newly-remixed version of Utada Hikaru’s “Simple and Clean”.

Also featured within the video are select scenes from Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover. A 2.8 exclusive, Back Cover is a movie that covers the earliest events of the Kingdom Hearts history, and takes place around the same time as the mobile game Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue is slated for release on January 24th, 2017 for the PlayStation 4.

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
